Railway stations in Hastings
The independent Brighton, Lewes & Hastings Railway was incorporated in 1844 to construct a 32.5 miles (52.3 km) line from Brighton to Bulverhythe, 2.75 miles (4.43 km) from Hastings. A temporary terminus named "Bulverhythe" was opened on 27 June 1846 on a site near the Bull Inn on the modern day A259 Bexhill Road pending the construction of a bridge over the River Asten. The station remained open for just under six months, before the line was extended to a permanent station at St Leonards West Marina in November 1846. The Brighton, Lewes & Hastings Railway was taken over by the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway in 1847.
